The Immortals struggle to find any sort of modern comparison to this week’s film, All the President’s Men. The album was easy because everyone in 2017 loves to listen to something that is “barely music”, or eat food that is barely getable or a listen to a song that is now randomly a cheesy movie or a read book that’s in German or watch a show that is even less liked than Man of Steel? We’re just too mainstream. Also listen to the end where Pedro invents a new improv rule called “Yes, So?”!
Film: 12 Angry Men
Director: Sidney Lumet
Format: Criterion Collection Blu-Ray
Fiction can be serve as a mirror to look back at ourselves or it can be used to make a world dramatically different than what we experience. The closer you get to reality, the more unnerving the experience can be. A fear I have is to have my fate be decided by twelve strangers. Just like we want for our President or teachers, we want the jury to be smartest set of 12 people that ever were assembled, because it’s your life on the line.
